General Information on Trusopt
Trusopt is a medication with the generic name dorzolamide, and it belongs to the drug class known as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors or CAO inhibitors.
You can buy Trusopt online for the treatment of open angle glaucoma or other medical conditions that result in abnormally high pressure within the eye after consulting your doctor.
Trusopt works by reducing the pressure within the eye. It may be used for other medical purposes, but only as per a doctor’s prescription.
Side effects of Trusopt
In extremely rare cases, Trusopt may trigger an allergic reaction, characterized by breathing difficulties, the appearance of hives, and a swollen face or throat. Other serious side effects associated with Trusopt include the following:
- Redness or swelling in the eyelids
- Extreme sensitivity to light and discomfort, pain or redness in the eyes
- Oozing, crusting, or drainage of your eyelids or eyes
- Severe skin problems, such as sore throat, fever, swollen tongue or face, burning sensation in the eyes, pain in the skin followed by purple or red skin rashes, and skin peeling or blistering
- Loss of appetite, stomach pain, yellowing of the eyes or skin, dark colored urine
The mild side effects of Trusopt are often harmless and wane over time. However, you need to alert your doctor if they become intolerable or persist:
- Dry mouth or sore throat
- Tiredness or weakness
- Watery or dry eyes
- Blurred vision
- Unusual or bitter taste in the mouth
- Stinging or burning sensation in the eyes
Trusopt commonly causes blurred vision. You must avoid performing activities that require clear vision while you are on Trusopt. This includes driving or operating certain kinds of machinery.
Dosage of Trusopt
You can only buy Trusopt if it has been prescribed by your doctor after evaluating your eye condition. The number of drops to be applied, the frequency of use, and total duration of the treatment will be determined by your doctor, and you must abide by them.
While using Trusopt, you must ensure that the dropper does not come in contact with any surface, including your hands or eyes, as the sterile dropper may get contaminated and cause an eye infection. If you are using other eye medications as well, you are advised to wait for around 10 minutes (preferably a little longer) before and after you apply Trusopt. Two eye medications must not be used in conjunction or within a short period of time.
Your doctor will show you the right method of applying Trusopt. If you have any doubts about the method of application, consult your doctor or pharmacist or refer to the patient information leaflet that comes with this medication.
Trusopt may interact with other drugs, including other eye drops or ointments. You must inform your doctor if you are taking methazolamide, brinzolamide, or acetazolamide before you buy Trusopt. It is always advisable to share the complete list of medicines you are taking with your doctor before you use any new drug, including Trusopt.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
